ÁBATON Arquitectura Award winning design firm. Architecture, Planning/Urban Design, Construction, Interior Design, Research and Consulting.
ÁBATON was founded in 1998 by Camino Alonso, Ignacio Lechón and Carlos Alonso. From the beginning they aimed for the projects to express the facts that defined the Studio. To achieve it they started up the Construction Company in order to control the whole building process as well as the final result. ÁBATON projects’ impact determined the high turnout of clients searching for a place that expressed the same language of light, sustainability and space that ÁBATON applies to all its projects. Currently, ÁBATON is developing more efficient work processes to confront bigger challenges that have to do with the international growth of the Studio.
Since ÁBATON was established, Camino Alonso has been the Creative Director, implementing a unique style based on the design of efficient, simple and, above all, human spaces linked to the environment and with a special concern for nature.
ÁBATON is fully aware of the footprint that building generates in the environment and our goal is to minimise that footprint as far as possible: our construction projects are designed to include
low environmental impact materials that are ecological, easily recyclable and affordable; rainwater is always returned to the land to ensure the natural moisture of the area being developed.
To date, ÁBATON Arquitectura has completed about 200 projects (housing, hotels, offices, restaurants) and it has renovated more than 80 homes in Spain and abroad. Our work has been acknowledged in the specialised press in more than 80 countries
This Mediterranean Retreat House is about 450 square meters, it is located in the island of Menorca and it has three floors to suit the steep topography of the land and to promote the joy of the wonderful views from most of the spaces of the house.
Finally, our clients chose a 1960s house with a magnificent garden and with a very robust, compact enclosure. We wanted to "perforate" the facade, no so much as for the house to open up onto the garden, but for the garden to look onto the house.
The dwelling under refurbishment is situated in the very centre of Madrid, next to one of the most important cultural sites in the city, namely, the surroundings of the Retiro Park. It is a top-storey flat with a terrace of 190 m2 of usable space.
